This is a Butte in Arizona near Monument Valley, the inner plug of an ancient volcano, similar to Shiprock. This is on Navajo land and was taken from the road, so as to not trespass. 50 mm lens, f 2.0, 15 seconds, ISO 6400, Nikon D810A camera. No added lighting. Panorama of 7 vertical images.

If you are interested in night tours in and around Monument Valley, google "Majestic Monument Valley Tours", call then and ask for a night tour with Quanah Parker.

Panorama at White Pocket, Arizona. 10 images, 14 mm, f 2.0, 25 sec., ISO 12,800. I think this might be my first pano of the MW Arch in August. Typically I find the MW is too high to get onto a single row Pano by that time of year. Somehow I was able to fit the whole sweep of the MW onto a vertical 14 mm Pano. You can tell it is getting late in the MW season because the core has set relatively quickly during the night. There is still plenty on MW to see though! Note the Andromada Galaxy near the top of the frame, above the Milky Way, to the right.

Honeymoon Arch in Monument Valley. This is taken from "inside" the arch. There is a large opening in the front, and a large opening skyward. This is a vertical panorama taken with a 14 mm lens. The Arch has a much more standard appearance from the front which I will post later. There is lighting using Low Level Lighting (lowlevellighting.org), in this case with 2 small Goal Zero Micro lights used on lowest power.

This arch, and many of the other arches in Monument Valley are off the usual tourist routes. If you are interested in night tours google "Majestic Monument Valley Tours", call them and ask for a night tour with Quanah Parker.

My is my personal favorite photo of the summer, a view of the MW over the Great Kiva at Pueblo Bonito in Chaco Culture National Historical Park. This is an impressive and mysterious place even in the daytime, but is haunting at night, like stepping back in time.

There is LLL (Low Level Lighting) within the Kiva (a small Goal Zero Micro Lantern lowered on a string), and LLL on the background structures by a Ceneroid light panel on a tripod off to the left. See www.lowlevellighting.org

This is a panorama of 13 images taken at 20 mm, f 2.0, 20 sec., and ISO 10,000.

There is a thin layer of clouds present which causes the stars to be somewhat indistinct and to "bloom". I thought they might mess up the photos but I ended up liking the effect.

You need a special use permit, SUP, and must be accompanied by a ranger to go in at night. Adult supervision is required!
